Hi! I am new here also. You sound just like me! I have the same symptoms. I am a 30 year old mom of a 3 year old and a six year old. Turns out that I have Pernicious Anemia. For the past month I have been getting B-12 injections every week. Also I went for 12 sessions of physical therapy 3x's a week. The therapy included exercizes that stimulate the nerves and Anodyne Therapy(infa-red to improve circulation to the nerve and promotes healing). It cost alot of money,but thankfully I have insurance. It was still $20 a session. We just focused on the feet/legs,but I also noticed a improvement in my hands as well. I would say overall over the past month with everything I am doing combined, my pain level has come down to a level 4 rather than a 6. Also I am not noticing as much pins and needles and throbbing pain, just a even pain. Energy wise I am up a bit too. Not as much as I would like, but it is a bit better. I totally understand with stopping exersize also. I gained some weight that I am not happy about since this started. But right now I am just focusing on doing my physical therapy exercizes that I learned and doing them at home. Also, I am working on getting a home Anodyne system through my insurance. They are pricey too. No matter what you have to pay around $500, but the rest may be covered by insurance. I am willing to pay anything to continue to get better though...Unfortunatley the home system only has 4 pads vs/the 8 that they had at therapy. When I really needed 16 to do my hands and arms also! But what can you do...I'm trying to focus on the positive. Just means a escuse to sit on the couch and prop my feet up for longer with the anodyne on! Best wishes!
